war, some within the obama administration have had enough and are calling for action. with an estimated 500,000 people dead in syria and thousands of refugees fleeing for their lives, dozens of american diplomats called for a radical change. the 51 state department officials who signed the classified internal memo argued that the u.s. should destroy syrian dictator bashar al assad's military might. assad has faced no consequence for his brutality, continuing to ignore assad while fighting isis is dragging out the five-year war. and they believe it is creating new extremists. but president obama has long been hesitant to intervene in another middle east war. in 2012 he threatened military action if assad used chemical weapons. >> we have communicated in no

7:06 am
remarkable about this state department memo is that it was written by politically neutral diplomats, and they really hope that the white house doesn't dismiss this in the midst of a political campaign. the state department has to respond in writing within 30 to 60 days. >> margaret, thank you very much. pentagon confirms series of airstrikes targeted rebels inside syria attacks in the southern part of the country hit forces who have received u.s. military support. they were equipped to fight isis. russia's military has been backing the assad regime. a senior u.s. defense official said the strikes raised serious concerns about russia's intentions in syria. >> cia director offering new take on strength of isis that appears to contradict the president. beting itsold n two tori.

7:44 am
warn drivers about routes through high-crime neighborhoods. before that, new orleans will be one of the first cities where users could see a longer commute. kris van cleave is there and joins us this morning. hello to you, kris van cleave. >> reporter: good morning. now, the appmakers say this is all about safety. but starting today millions of drivers are going to see their waze to work different. it will happen first in los angeles and then soon here in new orleans. that's because the appmaker is going to minimize intersections like the one we're coming up. there's no stop and then asked to cross six lanes. this is what some call suicide straight. directs drivers across multiple lanes of heavy traffic. another concern for some when it suggests a left turn through that same multi-lane traffic without a light. not anymore. starting first in los angeles, the app may sacrifice a little time for safety. when we drove with the new
7:45 am
feature, it had us turn left on a lightly traffic side street instead of across the much busier lincoln boulevard in santa monica sending us to a stop sign and less stressful turn. >> do you have any sense of how much longer it will make my drive to work. >> if you are commuting 40 minutes to an hour, maybe it adds a couplements here and there. >> do you worrisome people are going to say, you're supposed to save me time and now you're costing me two minutes. >> they can opt to turn it off. >> make the turn anyway. >> make the turn anyway. waze will reroute you. >> that's one of the several changes they are considering. in brazil an elderly woman murdered after she went to an address in an area known for gang violence. the company working on what could be a controversial next step, a new feature in that country to alert drivers about routes through high-crime areas. >> we're working with the government. we're working with local community groups who are able to

identify which neighborhoods have safety issues. >> julie is head of the brand for waze. >> how do you do that without labeling a community a bad neighborhood. >> sometimes it's a choice of words. so dangerous is sort of a judgment whereas high-crime is fact ral. >> reporter: she said it would use data verified by a third party and also supported by data the app gathers from users including reports of accidents, incidents in police presence. >> crime data is notoriously unreliable. >> ezekiel edwards from american civil liberties union. >> people would be relying on flawed data where to drive, not to drive, who to engage and not to engage, perhaps where to spend money and not to spend money and further potential inequalities among neighborhoods as a result. >> do you think that's a risky move. >> there's a risk in not doing anything, so we don't really have a choice. of course there's a risk if you don't handle it correctly.
7:47 am
that's why it's got to be done with deep sensitivity. i think we've done that so far. >> the crime filter could be ready by the brazil olympics but there's no time line when it will be rolled out in brazil or any plans when it could come to the u.s. as for the difficult intersection, live in los angeles this morning, soon new orleans, and possibly by the end of the year d.c. and boston. >> all right, kris. good to know. really important information. all right. a stranger's split second decision to get involved pu,,
